mexico, gary johnson. cnn orc poll last month found johnson polling 3% of the voters nationwide. the chairman of the rnc, reince priebus, says he's not worried about a gary johnson. >> well, understand that they are not going to throw their vote away when we have an election here that's about the future of the america. i just don't see that happening. in fact, i see that it's almost a nonfactor. and so i -- i'm not worried about it. >> with me now, former new mexico governor and a republican when he was governor in new mexico, gary johnson. governor johnson, good morning. >> chuck, great to be with you. thank you. >> let me ask you this. what are you advocating that you don't think is being advocated by either president obama or mitt romney? >> let's not bomb iran, let's get out of afghanistan tomorrow, bring the troops home, marriage equality, that it's a constitutional right. i would have never signed the defense authorization act. balance the federal budget now. eliminate income tax, corporate tax, abolish the irs and replace that with one federal consumption tax which i thin

.s. and mexico. we're talking about tomatoes and maybe sour grapes as well. the it's subject of our deep dive today. last week, the obama administration announced it favored canceling a 16-year-old $3.5 billion tomato trade deal with mexico. the deal encourages imports and has kept tomato prices low. but florida growers say they're so low they can't catch up. the numbers show mexican tomato sales have quadruple since 2000 while florida has seen its cut shrink dramatically. after a flurry of letters from lawmakers, the commerce department decided to repd the trade agreement be scrapped. mexico growers were stunned, upset they hadn't been granted a meeting until after the decision. why did the decision get rushed? presidential politic, the influence of those florida growers might have played just a small role. michael isakoff is nbc's national investigative correspondent. it's an election year and hearing about issues like this, oh, favoritism of this front for florida. favoritism on that front for ohio. it shouldn't come as a shock and yet, we see it play out every year. four years, excuse me.

money or compete and while republicans were looking at places like washington too. where's new mexico? >> robert, one of the things john cohen head of the polling team said it is fascinating the split between the engagement of young voters in swing states and voters in non-swing states. that's where this is being waged. that's where we need to check with enthusiasm. >> i was listening to liz a few moments ago. it feels a lot like 2008. not necessarily from an enthusiasm point. but the math looks almost identical to 2008 in many ways. president obama, let's face it. has has multiple paths to victory. mitt romney does not. the question becomes whether or not wednesday becomes a game changer for the senator. >> i have a theory when someone is on the verge of winning, we get into more battle dround state, not less states. >>> when we come back, we're going to talk more. trivia time. how many vice presidents served under more than one president? two. john calhoun served under both john quincy adams and andrew jackson. we'll be right back.

it in place. >>> one border patrol agent has been killed in a shooting near the mexico/arizona border. we're following that story. we'll get you more updates as we get them. >>> in today's deep dive, president obama and mitt romney will share a stage wednesday night in front of what's likely to be the the largest audience yet in this campaign and may be the best and last chance to change the trajectory of the race. they are both experienced debaters, to a point. the president survived 26 primary debates, three general election debates in 2008. his debate experience for federal office goes back to his only unsuccessful campaign, his 2000 democratic primary challenge to bobby rush. >> i don't think anybody should have a pass. i don't think congressman rush should have a pass. i don't think the mayor should have a pass. i don't get a pass for my state senate seat. >> but the president hasn't debated in four years and his campaign claims he's rusty. romney's experience goes back to his first unsuccessful run for political office. that 1994 senate race against ted kennedy. but romney's just be

, the great-grandson and the funniest when he looked to mitt romney and he said your dad is going to mexico and you have kids, are you sure you're not catholic and that got a big laugh throughout the room. i would say in terms of looking at their body and interaction, chuck, i kept an eye on them all night, not a lot of interaction. you had the cardinal obviously sitting between them. i was also shocked not a lot of interaction between president obama and ann romney. kind of a coldness there just from viewing it from afar. >> it is rough, buddy. it is a rough campaign. i had a feeling this would get uglier in the next 18 days. it was good to have them at least show the public that maybe they can still have a sense of humor. >> it seemed heart fefelt when y talked about each other's family and good to have a cardinal between them. >> neither political party right now, the operatives, have no sense of humor anymore. luke russert, thank you very much. this morning early christmas presents for political junkies. it's a string of fiery and feisty senate debates in some of the toughest senate rac

, did harry reid just show that -- i guess my question is, is nevada the next new mexico where four years from now we won't even have it on the initial battleground map? it will essentially get a couple visits early from a republican and then it's just a lock for whoef the democratic nominee is? >> i'm not sure about that. i don't want to take it off the battleground status. >> i know you don't. >> but i think the points you're making is right. there might be a microcosm with republican party with the burgeoning hispanic population. the republicans need to find a way to talk to the hispanic community. they cannot sustain 30 and 40-point losses in that community in nevada and hope to ever win nevada again. we'll see what happens but early numbers here looks like the hispanic vote is turning out. the culinary union, biggest union, most of the gaming employees are represented, huge hispanic population. they're turning out to vote. it's very difficult tore me to make the argument that nevada is going to be a battleground state again in four years. but i may try anyway. >> i've had repub
